Conan's Ufaka is MMA behemoth Bob Sapp

02.26.2010

Just a few days after we heard that Mickey Rourke was going to be playing Conan's father, we have new news from the film, that the villainous role of Ufaka has been cast. Latino Review is reporting that the role has gone to the giant wall of muscle that people call “Bob Sapp,” an MMA fighter and probably one of the most terrifying human beings I’ve ever seen. Look into his eyes. LOOK AT THEM.

WWE wrestler Shad Gaspard was supposed to be circling the role, but I guess the producers took a look at him and said, “Good, but can we DOUBLE HIM IN SIZE?”

Here’s the official description for Ufaka, think Sapp qualifies?

Ukafa is in his 30s-40, very dark-skinned African or African American, massively framed at six-foot-five, gold-toothed, hardened by a lifetime of war, a leader of Kushite Tribemen from the savannahs of Kush. Ukafa is Khalar Singh’s second in command, jealous that Singh’s son, Fariq, will one day be warlord. He obeys his leader but plots the overthrow of his son. He is a mighty warrior and unbeatable in battle—until he comes face to face with Conan.

I hope Jason Momoa is doing some serious weight training right about now.

Hope is not Lost

Johnney,the fans may still get Raw Leiba,rumor has it that they are writing him in as we speak,he oringinally turned down the movie,but supposedly an 11th hour phone call by the producers might have saved the day,Im trying to get verification on that.

Hahahaha, that bloke looks daft as fuck in that photo. Seriously, what a massive twat.

And yes, I would say that to his face, because I'm a fast runner.

I'm more worried about the director of this film than Jason Mamoa. He's only delivered two good movies and they were both horror remakes. At least the casting so far other than the hit-or-miss Conan is looking pretty cool so far. I'm on the fence here, gonna need a solid trailer to juice me up...talking about juicing up, Jason's gonna need some...

Errr bit of a dumb comment saying this is gonna be 'drab as all fuck like Clash of the Titans' when that isn't even out yet and you haven't seen it. Put your psychic skills away for a bit and try waiting for the film. Ever heard of reserving judgement?

p.s Feel free to slam head anywhere

This stupid reboot of Conan is going to be drab as all fuck just like Clash of the Titans, and damned near every single fucking movie that came out after Saving Private Ryan. One thing I really loved about the old Conan movies was the strange golden quality and charismatic characters. But I can bet this reboot is going to make me want to slam head-on into that cement median on the freeway.

Goddamn that is a big dude. I won't say that he can't act, but I'm going to guess it. Couldn't be much worse than John Cena and his bulky wooden ass.

Umm, yeah I was dissapointed when I read this on the Arrow.I would have rathered seen Raw Leiba. I hope this is'nt a hint to where the rest of casting is going,...What next? If there's a female role they'll bring in Tina Turner

OK, I have to LOL at the "Would anybody like a peanut?" remark, but mainly because Segel did that so well in I LOVE YOU, MAN.

Sapp is also a pro wrestler. He lost a wrestling match in Japan a few days ago. He was HUGE in Japan a few years ago but his stock as fallen after MMA losses and lack of skill. Search for SAPP TIME on Youtube, it's the greatest music video of all time.
